Anyone know if I'm allowed to fly JFK-YVR-SEA with the JFK-YVR being CX and YVR-SEA being AS? Both in terms of a mixed airline award and in terms of cabotage?

Would not be allowed for cabotage reason. AS allows you to combine AS with another single partner.

I thought so. It would still be an issue if I spent time in YVR, right?

Correct, cannot be booked as a single award.

Alaska Changed Flight Time - What are my rights?
« Reply #244 on: February 13, 2018, 04:42:50 PM »
TL,DR: Can I get Alaska to change the dates on my itinerary since Alaska (AA) changed the time of my flight?

I booked a trip to HKG on AA right by the deadline that closed the off-peak fare 50K option to Asia (business). My itinerary is LAX-JFK (April), JFK-LAX-HKG (aug)

Any changes to the itinerary ask for 20K more miles since the price has gone up to 70K in Jan

I get an email from Alaska today saying that my flight time (for the LAX-HKG segment) was moved back from 1:55 AM to 1:20 AM. The JFK-LAX segment was already tight (lands at 12:12 AM) meaning that the 35 minute difference is impactful.

I'm looking for thoughts on getting Alaska to change the entire itinerary to better dates and or connect through other cities due to this change? If not, would I at least be able to cancel the ticket less than 60 days before the flight at no cost?

You should be able to change, PUPAC and HUCA.

Is there a way of checking if my Alaska airlines account is in review or flagged? Opened a credit card with them (30k) and got the bonus 10k miles for the Virgin switchover, and I even credited a flight to it, the account shows active and shows balance, but I had a situation with them previously (a middle name account and booked someone else's return which flew there on Alaska miles, got ugly), any one can give me some pointers what to do? Thanks.

If I book a Cathay pacific business class flight using Alaska miles. Is there a change fee to upgrade that flight to first class using miles?

What if you book tlv-hkg-lax on business, and f opens on hkg-lax, can they just upgrade that leg, or do they have to cancel the whole thing and you have to hope the tlv-hkg j leg goes back into award inventory?

You can upgrade it without a problem.
